Soft tissue surgeries are performed every day except Tuesday at Mayfair Animal Hospital. Prior to surgery, your pet will have a pre-anesthetic blood panel done to be sure they are healthy enough to undergo anesthesia and surgery. All patients are evaluated by a doctor prior to surgery. During surgery, all patients are carefully monitored by skilled technicians using advanced heart and blood pressure monitoring equipment. Surgical patients are maintained on intravenous fluids to help maintain blood pressure and support kidney function. Specialized warming devicesare utilized during surgery, and additional heat sources are used post-surgery to maintain proper body temperature and to make our patients comfortable during anesthetic recovery. Appropriate pain relief medications are used to help ensure that all patients are comfortable during the post-operative period.
